PRESS RELEASE: SRAM and Troy Lee Designs
SRAM and Troy Lee Designs are beyond excited to announce the return of SRAM TLD Racing for the 2019 season, recruiting two of the best up and coming riders; Valentina Höll and Lucas Cruz. Neither are strangers to the SRAM and TLD families, and we’re super excited to welcome them to the team.
Valentina Höll needs no introduction, after a perfect 2018 season we're on the edge of our seats to see what 2019 is going to bring as her final season as a junior.
Lucas Cruz, also a 2nd year junior and hailing from Pemberton, British Columbia, is the current Canadian Jr. National Champion and was most recently supported by the Trek BC Devo Team and the Stevie Smith Legacy Fund; providing Lucas the experience and values which we believe made him a no brainer for our team.
It goes without saying that an integral part of our team are the techs that keep the bikes rolling; we are thrilled to have Mat Gallean and JT Evans filling those slots. Mat is no stranger to World Cup racing himself, and also wrenched for the ten time DH World Champion Nicolas Vouilloz. With experience for days, JT started his career working for the legendary John Tomac and most recently former SRAM TLD Racing athlete Luca Shaw.
At SRAM TLD Racing we are afforded the opportunity to work with the best the industry has to offer. A big THANK YOU to all of our incredible sponsors for 2019, couldn’t do it without you.Photos by @jamesstokoephoto
